Good balance of malt to hops. My everyday goto when nothing else is intriguing.

I think the Georgia Brown is getting a bad rap on BA....I think its quite nice. The beer poured a dark opaque dark with brownish hue. It had an offwhite head that left a nice ring lace. The scent probably was the poorest mark as it was faint but with bread like tones. The taste was a not so malty base with biscuit and maybe a hint of maple syrup. The mouthfeel was medium in body with smooth carbonation. Overall it was a very solid brown.

From the bottle, it pours a clear reddish brown with a fluffy tan head. A bit of malt and nuts in thenose. The taste is slightly sweet malt that follows the scent. Enjoyable.

Nutty on the back; cocoa aftertaste. Thin, but not watery texture.
